Is Shannon crazy? Is Shannon an emotional wreck? Are the voices in Shannon’s head actually Tamra Judge reading a script from David Beador‘s iPhone on how to manipulate and condescend Shannon into a meltdown? #yes
But first a Kelly Dodd montage! Kelly is dating, dating, dating and ignoring Jolie who Michael Dodd is dating. But Vicki Gunvalson isn’t! Obviously, she is very invested in what is going on in Michael’s life.
Let’s be honest. The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion episodes have been better than the regular episodes this season. Then again, that’s not saying a lot. The ladies are really bringing it. FINALLY! Let’s hope this continues into Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14.
Emily Simpson’sintroduction to the Real Housewives of Orange Countyhas been a little iffy for me. Throughout much of the season, she’s been a backseat driver to the crazy that is the OC. Every once in a while she is the voice of reason among these women. Or at the very least Gina Kirschenheiter’s wing woman. Overall, she hasn’t really had any major disagreements with the other women.
Her biggest issues have come from her own life with a possibly controlling her “keep it down” party police husband. Emily claimed that Shannon Beador gave her flashbacks to her own mother’s issues. She shared her heartbreaking tales of miscarriages. She wanted a child when her husband didn’t. Reflecting on the season, it just didn’t seem as though Emily had much to fear from the reunion show. That didn’t stop Ms. Simpson from using that law degree. I might have been the first time a newcomer was really ready for the trial by fire that is a Real Housewives reunion.rom
Part one of the reunion ended with Kelly Dodd screaming into the phone and crying. Part 2 opened with VickiGunvalson apologizing for repeating a rumor she heard about Kelly using cocaine. While that is all nice and good, we know that Vicki’s apology is as sincere as the one Kelly gave for calling Vicki a “pig” and a “fat ass.” Shannon, however, ermerges as the unlikely voice of reason when she points out that the negativity and tit for tat is really hitting too low and isn’t making either woman feel (or look) good. And no amount of plastic surgery erases a bad attitude!
Why are we even having a Real Housewives of Orange Countyreunion? Well, maybe we do need one, but not one in multiple parts. Long story short, the Real Housewives of Orange County cast did not come through this season.
However, the first part of the RHOC reunion was better than the whole season. Let’s just hope the same holds true for the second.
All eyes are on Lisa Vanderpump these days. If you’re searching for her, don’t look anywhere near the Beverly Hills Housewives. She’s not hanging out with any of them these days, but she does spend time with some beloved animals. Recently, she shared a photo of herself holding a giant bunny.
The most important part of any reunion is to dissect the outfits. First of all, Shannon Beador looks great! I don’t know if it’s the glowy spray tan indicating a break from Dr. Moon‘s holistic practices of wiping Shannon’s entire body in tan resistant mineral powders to ward of surface level UV free radicals, or the 30lb weight loss, or finally shedding her toxic friendship with Tamra Judge, but Shannon looks better than we’ve seen her in years. THIS is the divorced Shannon we were craving all season!
When Kelly Dodd first joined Real Housewives of Orange County, she was far from a fan favorite. Eventually, she became a polarizing character with some good points and plenty of entertaining arguments. Now that Kelly is on her third season, it’s safe to say she was the only reason to watch this season.
Pretty much nothing happened for most of the season. Thankfully, Kelly gave us comic relief, genuine emotion, and some iconic insults. “Little bitch,” anyone? As far as (most of) the fans are concerned, Kelly Dodd is the queen on Real Housewives of Orange County. Just don’t say that to the OG of the OC. Vicki Gunvalson accused Kelly of doing cocaine during the Season 13 reunion and Kelly is livid. Kelly is so upset that she claims she doesn’t want to return unless Vicki gets fired.
